The GGLO/Absher design-build team created this concept with the overarching belief that residence halls should be design not just to house students, but rather to enhance and contribute to the community and campus context and to be a lasting contributor for future developments.

The GGLO/Absher design-build concept for Northside Residence Hall Phase II is based on strengthening the identity of the Northside Neighborhood and creating a unique living and learning environment to fit the diversity of student needs at Washington State University. The design responds to the site and context in a way that is respectful of adjacent buildings and site characteristics, creating a new and exciting expression of identity for the Northside neighborhood and the WSU Campus. Located in the southwest corner of the Northside Neighborhood, the mixture of residences, public amenities, marketplace and café, and community gathering spaces serves to animate the Northside and provide a catalyst for future Northside development. The envisioned program and layout anchors and activates Colorado Street, creating a center of activity that will not only house students, but also enhance and contribute in a major way to the campus context.
